My story

[p]A bit about me and why !Most of my close friends and family know I have an eye condition but it’s not always obvious to those that don’t.[/p][p]I have a condition called stargardt’s disease which affects my central vision and I am now registered blind as a result.[/p][p]Stargardt’s disease is a degenerative condition which means my sight has got worse over time and losing my sight this way is one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced as I used to be able to do so much more for myself and find it hard to ask for help. However help is available and I found my support in local charity Newcastle vision support who gave help and advice on everything from new technology to help you do the things you used too ,welfare advice on benefits and assistance people with sight loss can apply for but most of all understanding of my challenges as a person with sight loss and hope that I am able to live an independent ( normal ) life. I decided I wanted to give something back to show my appreciation but to also challenge myself to prove being blind does not define me and decided to try and raise some money by participating in the great north 10k followed by the great north run in September. This is a huge challenge for me as I am not a natural runner however with the help of my amazing guide runner ( my mam Julie Cosgrove) I know I will give it everything I have and hope you will get behind me and donate anything you can to show your support for this amazing charity who do amazing things for people like me and others suffering with sight loss. Funding is scarce right now especially due to the covid 19 pandemics and any donations would make a huge difference.[/p][p]Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and donating to this fantastic cause.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Debbie [/p][p] [/p]
